That's what I would answer if I was asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?'
"A Mathematician?" What was I thinking...?
I look back on that answer now and it makes me shudder. What does that even mean?
It was a long time ago.
I loved math, and numbers and being the fastest to answer multiplication math facts as I moved from one desk to the next facing my fellow students down in the math challenge.
It was exciting. I loved it!!!
I was the champion of math facts in my school. Wayne said he was the champion at his elementary school...so it's a good thing we didn't meet in Elementary school. We would have hated each other and never gotten married?
I actually loved all of school and was very good at it.
I did all of my assignments and got straight A's.....except for two times -- Home Ec and Drivers Ed--the only two classes where I still use the skill sets taught to me, on a daily basis.
I'm drilling Laila, nightly on her math facts. She doesn't really love numbers.
When she grows up she wants to be a surgeon for Operation Smile. I hope she does.
